Good and believable prison flick
30 December 2012 | by OJTSee all my reviews

An Irak veteran takes job as prison guard after returning from the war, still bothered with memories from the war traumas. The veteran, Sam Norwood, knows his stuff, but are soon realizing that the prison is not run the way it should. It seems that it's not easy to please all ways. Does he have the backing needed by his superiors?

The film is great played, very real and believable, like most British films. You could hold Against it that the film is Being more than an action flick. It's also loaded with realism back home.

There's also an excitement lingering and true enough, you never can be sure what you get into at this station. Being based upon real events, making base of a novel, and with this film following, I can't say anything else that I really enjoyed the flick.

This film is better than it's rating here at the moment, and is well worth a watch.
